Circulate on Twitter comparisons of the different versions of The Callisto Protocol for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. In the comparison videos taken from a post by DigitalFoundry come, it becomes clear that the sci-fi horror shooter on the high-end console from Microsoft with clear Frame rate fluctuations has to fight.

The competitor Sony is said to be to blame for the technical misery.
Playstation 5 vs. Xbox Series X – which console is technically better?
In the history of video games, it has almost become a tradition that Fan camps of different platforms like to squabble about the sovereignty of interpretation, which console more power in a direct duel has to show. This is especially true when the competing products due to the technical information manufacturers are difficult to compare with each other.
So already claimed early 1990s Fans of the Sega Mega Drive know that the Super Nintendo is about not a “proper” 16-bit console would act. Although the processor architecture of the SNES allowed such a conclusion, the reality in the form of games proved the opposite.
Around 30 years later everything is the same. Sony enthusiasts are arguing with Xbox ultras about whether the blisteringly fast storage of the PS5 is superior to the teraflops of the Microsoft monolith, or even has grown at all. Often will direct comparisons of two identical titles used to illustrate who is in the showdown of the current console generation has the edge. This is also the case with The Callisto Protocol (buy now €176.99 ).
Why does The Callisto Protocol run better on Playstation 5 than Xbox Series X?
The team of DigitalFoundry is known for in-depth technical analysis of the latest games. In the case of the currently controversial sci-fi horror shooter The Callisto Protocol, they show that the version for the Xbox Series X has significant technical flaws compared to the Playstation 5. Next to Framerate drops and lack of ray tracing, visibility fog clouds the visual enjoyment on the Xbox Series X. Digital Foundry is surprised by these problems and has already taught the Striking Distance Studios development team about their knowledge.
For some Xbox fans, however, the case is crystal clear. None other than Blame Sony on the technically inadequate version of the Xbox Series X. Finally, the Japanese company presented 150 employees to help develop The Callisto Protocol. In turn, the game became mainly in trailers and gameplay videos with Playstation 5 content Applied.
And so it seems to some Xbox fans being clear as pie on Twitter that Sony must have somehow boycotted the Xbox version. These claims are considered by other Twitter users crude conspiracy theories dismissed. Teraflops don’t mean everything, is the unanimous opinion. And so it is suspected that The Callisto Protocol is simply not sufficiently optimized. It will be interesting to see how the developers technical problems on the Xbox can be eradicated by appropriate patches. First steps were loud DigitalFoundry already done.
